Anise bread with sweet pear sauce 40 minutes

It's mini loaf craze! Love baking with the mini pans I bought recently. Been making mini everything. This time i made some anise bread topped with a sweet sauce loaded with pear chunks.

My bag of anise seeds has been sitting in my pantry for way too long begging to be given a purpose.

I'm sorry i've neglected you for so long anise seeds. You're delicious and you smell so so nice. No hard feelings?We're good you and I right?


This recipe was inspired by a Pineapple and anise seed pudding chomeur recipe on Will travel for food! I ended up just making little cake breads instead of pudding. Making them egg-free worked out nicely too! My cake breads have a bit less sugar than the pinapple pudding chomeur.

You guys should pay 'Will travel for food' a visit! It's a Montreal blog too :D how cool is that? More montreal cookies friends!
